Weekend Snapshot

Happy Monday! I thought it would be fun to share a weekend recap with you guys, because my weekend was pretty eventful!  Are you tired of my Christmas posts yet? Me too (yes, me too). This is my last one, promise! :)

On Friday night, I met up with my friend Kim and we had dinner at McAlisters, exchanged Christmas gifts, then went to the movie theater for “Into the Woods”. I’m a fan of musicals, so I loved the movie! I didn’t know anything about the background or original story before seeing the movie, but I thought it was well cast and very well done! I recognized Cinderella’s prince but couldn’t figure out which movie I’d seen him in…a quick IMDB search revealed that he was also Princess Mia’s prince in Princess Diaries 2!  Too funny!

On Saturday morning, I woke up and was not sure what I wanted to do. My BRF was out of town, it was rainy (and nasty/hot/humid/gross) outside, and my knee was iffy. After much deliberation, I finally decided that I needed to get up and get moving. I arrived at my running group a bit late, but there were others who were running longer distances than I was, so no one minded. Thankfully, my 8 mile run was very uneventful right up until the last mile. My knee began bothering me a bit, so I slowed down my pace and took it easy. I was happy I made it all the way to 7 miles before I felt the pull of my IT Band! Yay! I also ran without any music at all because the forecast called for 100% chance of rain. Guess what? It didn’t rain a single drop while running my 8 miles. Not a single drop. My life.

The Louisiana Half is in 2 weeks with Rock N Roll New Orleans the following weekend. I cannot wait for either of these races and I hope my knee cooperates!

Saturday night, two of my friends and I had our final Christmas party of the year. You have NO clue how hard it was for me to leave my Christmas stuff up that long…I mean, I love Christmas and all, but after it’s over I start getting anxious to return my house to it’s proper order!

Christmas Party

Yes, it turned into a pajama party, complete with onesies!

I made the framed print for Kenzie because it’s her favorite Disney quote, and Melissa received a few Peter Pan items because it’s her favorite movie!

Kenzie made each of us a Tinkerbell shirt. We are all planning on running the Tinkerbell 2016 Half Marathon and these shirts are great motivation! Melissa is getting married in August of this year, so Tinkerbell is a great goal for everyone to have in planning up to and again after the wedding! Besides, Tinkerbell is Melissa’s favorite Disney character, all of us love Disney, and neither Kenzie or Melissa have been to Disneyland…so it’s a perfect fit! I mean, hello!



On Sunday after church, I began the process of taking down all of the Christmas decorations. It took 8 hours and I watched/listened to the entire season 4 of Downton Abbey, but I got it done! Now my house is back in order, it’s all tidy and clean, and it feels oh so wonderful! I do love Christmas, but even I get tired of it after a while…yes, I admit it! :)

Well, that was a snapshot of my weekend! How was yours? Anything exciting happen?

To all of those participating in Marathon weekend this coming weekend, I hope you have a wonderful time! I’m sad I can’t be there, too! If it’s your first time experiencing this distance, enjoy the ride…you’ll never have another “first”, so make the most of it! Safe travels and happy running!


  1. Looks like a fun weekend! I LOVE Maurices!!!

  2. We played Disney Monopoly this weekend! I love the fun pjs!

  3. It looks like you and your girlfriends had a fun pj party. I could not agree more about getting the decorations down. I am also a huge fan of Christmas, but as you said, once it's over....We will be running Tink this year and look forward to getting back to Disneyland.

    1. Yes, I couldn't agree more! Tink sounds like so much fun! :) I can't wait to read about yalls experience!

  4. I took my decorations down before I went on vacation. It looks strange at first, but it meant everything would be back to normal even before I got back.

    1. That's great! I love coming home from vacation to a clean house, I would have done the same thing! :)
